Trigeminal neuropathic pain development and maintenance in rats are suppressed by a positive modulator of α6 GABA receptors.

Eur J Pain 2019 Jan 11. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Faculty of Pharmacy, Department of Pharmacology, University of Belgrade, Belgrade, Serbia.

γ-Aminobutyric acid type A (GABA ) receptors containing the α6 subunit are located in trigeminal ganglia, and their reduction by small interfering RNA increases inflammatory temporomandibular and myofascial pain in rats. We thus hypothesized that enhancing their activity may help in neuropathic syndromes originating from the trigeminal system. Here, we performed a detailed electrophysiological and pharmacokinetic analysis of two recently developed deuterated structurally similar pyrazoloquinolinone compounds. Read More

Pelvic Pain in Adolescents.

Semin Reprod Med 2018 Mar 19;36(2):116-122. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Michigan Health System, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Dysmenorrhea and noncyclic pelvic pain (chronic pelvic pain) are common in adolescents. The evaluation of teens with dysmenorrhea or chronic pelvic pain is aimed to diagnose possible gynecologic conditions (endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, ovarian cysts, and obstruction of the reproductive tract) and nongynecologic conditions (irritable bowel syndrome, interstitial cystitis, and myofascial pain). The management of chronic pelvic pain in adolescents is often more complex than in adult women because both the adolescent and her parents are counseled and addressed, and her long-term emotional and physical health, fertility, and sexuality are considered.
